IE6 Repairs, By The Book

Hello Fred…. Still enjoying Langalist Plus…..
Have been searching each issue for a reliable routine to "Repair" IE6….IE6 SP-1.
Have tried everything out there…and have not found anything that works.  Under Win XP Pro, IE6 does not show up in the Add/Remove Programs display…..and by George no other place (that I can find)…..
Don’t know if this would be a "biggie" for your readers…but for this ole’ boy from Mississippi, it would be a godsend….cause I have clients that regularly need some remedy, rather than doing the full Montie repair.
Thanks for your time…and keep up the good work.. Windy Wes McIngvale
